    IME, Brux barrels are about as good as they get. They definitely make a very good barrel. We are blessed to have several choices of TOP FLIGHT barrels available to us.

    I prefer wheated Ky bourbons. Weller is at the top of the list, of what I can afford, other than a special occasion bottle. Larceny Small Batch is close, cheaper and more readily available, though.
